Franchising for you, and for your business: Why, when and how – Boost

May 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Is a franchise business or franchising right for me?

This session is brought to you by Choose Chorley & Digital Creative and will be presented by Jane Coleman – UK&I Head of Franchise for Pret A Manger

Franchising has been integral in Janes career since she was asked to create the UK Franchising system in Starbucks in 2012. Being a true northern girl, living and working in London was a challenge and in 2016 she set up her own consultancy and worked with a number of franchisees and SMEs to help then deliver their businesses.

She is now a business adviser and investor in DATechs based in Chorley and is the UK&I Head of Franchise for Pret A Manger.

Join us on Thursday 27th May 2021 at 2pm, where we’ll cover the following topics.

  • Why Franchise?
  • For a business – why move from a wholly managed system to divestment and/or franchising
  • For an individual – why does taking on a proven franchise make sense
  • When is it best to start?
  • For a business – what do you need and how do you start
  • For an individual – what to look for and what to expect
  • What are the potential issues?
  • For business – what are the risks and costs
  • For an individual – what are the risks and costs
  • Q&A
